Alfresco dining in the city


How does it work?

Fresh food in the Fresh Air.

Meet friends, colleagues and family for a bite to eat and chill out in this vibrant space in the heart of the city. When the sun comes out it is the perfect place to grab some fresh air, and we also have chalets for when you need more shelter. Choose from your favourite Derby café, pub or restaurant and support your local businesses – you can even order food from several places so there is something for everyone.
